Edinburgh have confirmed that scrum-half Sean Kennedy has penned a new two-year contract with the Pro 12 club.

The 26-year-old's professional rugby debut came with the Scotland regional side in 2011 and has also represented Glasgow Warriors and London Irish on loan.

He has also been part of Scotland U20 team in the 2011 Junior World Cup and Scotland Sevens team during the World Rugby Sevens series in 2012. Kennedy was also named in the training camp of Scotland team ahead of the 2013 Six Nations tournament.

Kennedy said: "Staying at the club was an easy choice for me and I'm excited to be involved for another two years.

"It's been a tough season for everyone, but I genuinely believe we have a really good squad and a huge amount of potential. We've shown we can beat any team on our day, but it's about finding the ability to do that consistently.

"All three scrum-halves have had their fair share of game time and that's been really good for us. It motivates us all to work hard in training and in games, and it's of real benefit to the group."

With nine wins from 22 games, Edinburgh ended the Pro 12 season at ninth position.
